Tigo Ghana was launched in 1992 and became the first operator in Ghana. Since then, it developed GSM, 2G and 3G networks and continues to provide services as a dynamic, highly visible brand.
Significant network expansion and improvements took place in 2015, in line with a rapid increase in smartphone adoption and demand for data services. New 2G/3G network roll outs were implemented by Tigo in 2016 with focus around Accra and Kumasi.
The Tigo brand is gaining strength and driving both digital and financial inclusion in Ghana. In 2011, Tigo Cash was launched which now records 3.2 million transactions every month. Subscribers now access mobile money services directly through Tigo, safely, quickly and easily. Tigo Ghana became the first Tigo market in Africa to launch Tigo Music in 2014, the streaming service which connects customers to a playlist of more than 30 million tunes.
